Episode Summary

Fred Armisen and Arianna Huffington
Host Jennie Saunders talks with guest Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, and Fred Armisen, "Saturday Night Live" cast member. The three talk about the history of political satire, Fred's role as Obama on "Saturday Night Live," and they stage a mock debate between Arianna and Fred playing a young Republican. They also discuss the success of the Huffington Post, Arianna asks Fred to blog for it and he gleefully accepts. The conversation gets a bit silly, when Arianna talks about her staunch preference for Starbucks green straws, the thinner of the two offered and coaches Fred in standing up for himself. We also hear about Arianna's sense of fearlessness and Fred's absolute passion for his job.moreless
